       notseq - Write to file a subset of an input stream of sequences


       notseq -sequence seqall -exclude string -outseq seqoutall [-junkoutseq seqoutall]

       notseq -help


       notseq is a command line program from EMBOSS (“the European Molecular Biology Open
       Software Suite”). It is part of the "Edit" command group(s).


   Input section
       -sequence seqall

   Required section
       -exclude string
           Enter a list of sequence names or accession numbers to exclude from the sequences read
           in. The excluded sequences will be written to the file specified in the 'junkout'
           parameter. The remainder will be written out to the file specified in the 'outseq'
           parameter. The list of sequence names can be separated by either spaces or commas. The
           sequence names can be wildcarded. The sequence names are case independent. An example
           of a list of sequences to be excluded is: myseq, hs*, one two three a file containing
           a list of sequence names can be specified by giving the file name preceded by a '@',
           eg: '@names.dat'

   Output section
       -outseq seqoutall

       -junkoutseq seqoutall
           This file collects the sequences which you have excluded from the main output file of
           sequences. Default value: /dev/null
